Hunting the goose in Edinburgh

November 1, 2012 : News

Wildgoose Scotland, operated by Maximillion, hosted a series of promotional events throughout October, offering corporate buyers, agents, hotels and venues the chance to experience one of our fabulously innovative and creative GPS treasure hunts.

The hunts were hosted at three of Edinburgh’s best loved city centre hotels, The Balmoral, The George and The Sheraton. Guests were able to enjoy the fantastic hospitality provided by these properties as well as the fun GPS activity.

After some welcome light refreshments on arrival and the event brief, participants set off into the city centre with their Samsung Galaxy Tablets to locate the GPS ‘hotspots’. Only when their GPS verified that they were in exactly the right location were they able to activate the hotspot and attempt the challenge. Challenges included:

  • Location specific clues
  • General knowledge questions
  • Photo challenges

A live scoreboard showing how other teams were faring, penalty points for incorrect answers and exciting timed challenges all added a real-time competitive twist to the afternoon.

Back at the hotel, scores were announced, the winning team was presented with their prize and everyone enjoyed a good giggle over a slideshow of all the photos taken during the event.

These promotional events were such a success that we are aiming to hold three more in the New Year – in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen.


“Just a quick email to say thank you for having Kim and I along yesterday to try out Wildgoose Scotland. It was a hugely enjoyable afternoon.”

“Thank you so much for inviting us to join you yesterday. We had a great afternoon and will thoroughly recommend it to all our contacts. And as ever we were well looked after by the Balmoral.”

“I think this is a superb activity. It gets everyone involved and also educates you about the city that you live in or are visiting. I love the fact that it also involves Joe Public and gets people talking to one another.”

“Brilliant afternoon, would be fantastic for a team building event and would definitely recommend to clients.”
